Review: Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

Imaginary GirlsImaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Summary:Chloe's older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can't be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby's friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.
But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.
With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about.

Characters: Not much to say about Chloe except that she seemed really dull compared to her sister. She seems very self-conscious and shy, whereas Ruby is the life of the party, and everyone wants to be her. The girls love each other. Ruby is very protective of Chloe, but Chloe seems to let Ruby walk right over her like the rest of the people in town.

Plot: This was super boring. It seemed like the whole book was about Ruby being better than everyone else in town. She's that girl that all of the girls wish could be and all of the guys wish they could get with. Reading about this was annoying. I thought this was going to be an eerily beautiful story, but it was just disappointing. One line barely got me weirded out. I thought I was going to be somewhat scared reading this.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Not unless you want to read about how great Ruby is.

The book trailer is so deceiving!
